About Mike

As an honor student in high school, education was always my top priority. I loved learning so much that I pursued an education degree in college, focusing first on math and then on theatre.

I spent one year teaching high school before my desire to be an artist drove me to move to California. I spent the first several years in Los Angeles working as a retail manager as I pursued my music and theater goals on the side (aside from two tracks on iTunes, nothing really panned out). I then left the retail job and spent the next few years travelling in Europe and Australia and learning to cook before enrolling in grad school to earn my MFA in photography. I have had several exhibitions and my work has been published in magazines around the country. My final semester included a course on teaching photography, including lesson plan creation. I recently moved to Palm Springs and have been working as a photographer with my own studio space.

My path has been atypical, I suppose, and certainly not linear. However, my cumulative experiences have added up to create a worldly, cultured person with a vast array of knowledge in many different areas. I look forward to using what I have learned to help young people struggling with a subject and helping them remove the obstacles that stand between them and their future successes.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Photography

I received a Master's Degree in Photography from the Academy of Art University. I have had several exhibitions and my work has been published in magazines around the country. My final semester included a course on teaching photography, including lesson plan creation. I also have a personal studio space, an online store, and three photo books that I have self-published.

Theatre

My undergraduate college major was Theater Education, and while in school I studied acting, directing, theater history, stagecraft, playwriting and more. I spent the following year student teaching three different drama classes and then directed after that. I have acted in both local and professional regional theatres and I have a vast knowledge of dramatic history and playwrights,

Mike's a great combination of knowledge, experience and a willingness to be open to his student's goals. I, as any student, am better off for having a tutor of his stature. He's much appreciated.
